Is anyone familiar with the M.S. in Interaction Design and Information
Architecture from the University of Baltimore? After speaking with the
director, the program is fairly new and has a very interesting curriculum.
As we have been discussing, there are different motivators why one may go
to school. Several of my requirements are finding a program which allows
me to be flexible in my curriculum, gain research experience and
connections, and facilitate learning in areas not just in interaction
design (also usability, human factors, hci, ucd, etc).
Most of these types of programs (hci, human factors) are traditionally in
Psychology or Computer Science degrees, but Im not looking for a title or
a piece of paper, I want an education. This program is very extensive
breadth wise for an interaction design degree, and its flexibility is one
of its drawing factors.
Does anyone have any experience or comments about this program or any
others in the DC/Baltimore area?
